Images from outer space: The Hubble Telescope

The Hubble Space Telescope has been in operation since 1990 when it was launched into low Earth orbit.

 

See all of the images in the included video.

For the last 27 years, it has provided humanity with beautiful, interstellar images of outer space that unravel the mysteries beyond the solar system.

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., offers the “New Views of the Universe” exhibit in its Visitor Center, featuring some of Hubble’s most impressive pictures, interactive displays that address some of the science concepts behind the telescope’s imagery, and a number of videos.

The Sombrero Galaxy – 28 million light years from Earth – was voted best picture taken by the Hubble telescope. 

The dimensions of the galaxy, officially called M104 , are as spectacular as its appearance.

It has 800 billion suns and is 50,000 light years across.

And, isn’t it interesting that “We”  on planet Earth think what’s going on in the Universe is all about “us”

Aren’t we naive? 

 The Ant Nebula, a cloud of dust and gas whose technical name is Mz3, resembles an ant when observed using ground-based telescopes.  The nebula lies within our galaxy between 3,000 and 6,000 light years from Earth.

 

THE END
